Our voting system gets its long-awaited overhaul - read the full textEver since its inception, our voting system has been subjected to relentless abuse from fanboys who give unrealistic votes to their most-hated and most-loved devices and thus rendering the overall score useless. We tried various policies that attempt to put a stop to this, including bans and...

 

Sort by:

Still not unrealistic and effective.

Voting for a phone should end six months after its release date because after six months the technology used becomes obsolete upto a certain extent,people will give it a much poorer score thus not reflecting the phones true impact upon release for example the nokia 3310 or n95 would probably have a 9 plus rating in its time but nowadays rate as a 1 or 2.

Android Phones: D = 9, F = 10, P = 10

Windows Phones: D = 10, F = 9, P = 10

iOS Phones: D = 2, F = 1, P = 1

Are those votes valid? Those are not all 10's and 1's right? Fanboys will still vote that way and thats a problem. I suggest each moderators can vote too, like Chavis, Peter, Vince, Prasad (all 10's on iPhone...) and others, and we users can view there (unbiased) votes.

P.S. I dont vote that way. Thats just a sample. (;

loggedd in users can also point extreme votes

but a really good move not completely good enough

i suggest you to make a team to make scores for the phones so that the expert opinions and public opinions should be averaged.

I hope users can only vote on phones that they have or restrict the voting to a maximum of three phones per user to make this voting more realistic..

As expected, the best phone(iPhone) has the lowest scores. Nokia's garbage has the highest scores...

This site is infested by delusional Nokia fans, how can you expect fair ratings?
